You could pack up your car if you have one, borrow your friend's truck, get a loaner from CityCarShare, or move by bike. Lots of bicyclists ride simply because it's the best, most direct way to get from Point A to Point B, and that holds for the big moves in your life too. Moving your apartment or office stuff with sturdy bike trailers has become the rage in some circles -- and you know what that means, many more of us will take it up sooner or later.
A Portland group of bike-lovers posted hot tips on how to manage a bike move on their blog SHIFT here . Scroll through the many move-by-bike endeavors underway in Portland, including last May's "Theo's Lumberjack Move-by-Bike" -- overalls, flannel shirts, and bears encouraged (but not mandatory) with vegan chili, cornbread, and beer at the destination. OK, maybe not a lumberjack clothing theme in San Francisco; tweed perhaps?
